We Got Stuck in and Here’s the Recipes
We knew that armed with a pot of glue, some ace stickers and some amazing fresh food that our young gang of farm fans were going to rise to the challenge and Eat Fresh Green Food.
Fresh Greens and Art Work Moment
and we can’t wait to see you again. The aim was to learn about foods journey and to get to experiment and taste it.
Everyone visited the poly tunnels and and planted beds loaded with chard, garlic and leaves and then headed back into the indoor space to nosh on the real thing whilst getting those creative juices flowing.

The team from the farm cut fresh (we mean you are talking super fresh) greens to nosh and try.
One mum commented that she loved the very casual way that the fresh leaves were in bowls everywhere which meant trying new foods was very unchallenging, just part of the fun.
